History has gotten a bad rap among school-age children. So says Christian author Jenny L. Cote, who has written a series of historical fantasy/fiction books geared toward children that are hooking in adults, too.
Cote’s latest book, “The Voice, The Revolution & The Key,” follows Patrick Henry from boyhood onward and spotlights the events leading up to the Revolutionary War. It is the latest release in a series of books by Cote that explore history through the eyes of animals, such as a dog named Max and a cat named Liz.
Cote is this week’s guest on “Words of Wisdom,” and she tells us:
- Where she believes our society has gone wrong in teaching history.
- Why she is so passionate about history — specifically early American history.
- What children can learn from studying the Founding Fathers.
- Why it’s so important to teach kids about the flaws – and the heroics — of America’s Founders.
